Academic Affairs wants to help you get money!! woo!
So we are back from break (I dunno if your’s was as wild as mine, seeing as I have a friend with a broken toe and we were yelled at by hotel staff 4 times in a 6 hour span of time for being too rowdy) and now it’s time to finish up this semester and figure out class schedules for next year where you don’t have classes on Friday.
And so Academic Affairs Committee is working out more details for the FAFSA help sessions during the week of April 19-23 in order to help students struggling to fill out the consarned FAFSA applications. On that Monday night, there will be two sessions in the Ogg Hall computer lab that you can register to attend on the FAFSA Week web site. Computers in Ogg are limited though, so if you’re stopping in you should bring a laptop just in case. Tuesday through Friday, you can also stop by the SAC for walk-in advising sessions if the Monday sessions don’t jive. Just check out the list of daily events for the SAC to get room numbers. So if you are lookin at the FAFSA application and have no clue whats going on, you should definitely stop by the FAFSA Week events and let some experts help you get as much money from the gov as possible! woo!
AA is also working on getting more faculty members to sign a petition in favor of the proposed Textbook Affordability Committee to help keep an eye on the costs of textbooks. The committee plans already got the approval of Student Council at its March 24 meeting before spring break (gah so long ago!) and now Faculty Senate and Academic Staff Senate have to green light it for creation.
And now, I must leave you to bury myself in a 10 page research paper due in two days…and study for a midterm tomorrow morning…professors get sick pleasure out of torturing students after spring break.
